look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2

375ml bottle poured into pint glass 15/3/14

A clear straw yellow with plenty of bubbles but just a short lived finger of foam that leaves a partial ring and a few random patches

S sweet grains and some wet cardboard, very little going on, a little hay maybe

T tastes much worse, chemicals and pennies, not quite skunky but a little musky, some cooked veggies, and soggy cereal

M thin and watery, soft carbonation, about what I expect from a macro but the aftertaste is awful and lingers

O not horrible until you taste it, doesn't really improve after that

this ones a wolf in sheep's clothing, looks good before you open and drink it, well and truly overpriced avoid this one boys and girls

375ml bottle poured into a pils glass by freshness date.

Gold/yellow color with lively spectacular carbonation showcase which twirls in circle during upwards way to the top. The white head is rather small but well retain and leave good amount of lacing stick.

Soft grain and sharp metallic hit the nose with some yeast pinch, dry malt note reveals when warm. Grain upfront in taste with harsh metallic follow in the middle, finish with somewhat sour that leave quite unpleasant aftertaste. Hop bitterness is very faint. The body is between light to medium, smooth with low carbonating in palate.

Quality is so contradictory with its appearance that looks promising. Awful taste and very low drinkability, finally the crown is just a clown.

355 ML at Qantas club at Sydney Airport. It was free and my GF surprised me with this.

A-- Clear light straw gold color. White film for head, lots of carbonation bubbles. Some lacing left through drinking.

S-- Sweet stewed cabbage and corn. Borderline repulsive.

T-- Sweet corn, sweet bread, a little bit of cardboard.

M-- Light body, high carbonation. Bloating feeling very quickly. Metallic corn finish. Clean and boring.

O-- A few sips was enough and thought a cappuccino was a better option. It was free and a tick. Could not finish the Michelob of Australia.
